Earlier this month, we heard that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (which, of course, is far from being officially confirmed) was scheduled to be released in October this year.
Now, GSM Arena is reporting that, according to an unnamed “insider”, the next-generation Note could be launched a bit earlier, namely in September. Samsung may want to do this in order to have the new Note on shelves before Apple intros its iPhone 5.
It’s said that the Galaxy Note 2 indeed sports a 5.5 inch display (possibly with a 1680 x 1050 pixel resolution), as previously rumored. Other features should include: dual-core Exynos 5250 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, LTE connectivity, and an 8MP rear camera. The new device seemingly borrows some design elements from the Galaxy S III, an might end up looking like this (that’s just a mock-up, of course):
The 5.3 inch Galaxy Note has been sold in more than 7 million units since launch (October 2011), so the next model is bound to be successful, too.
